I am thinking about getting some terries for DS2/DD. What sort of wraps would work? I presume that the plastic pants my sister (22) have moved on a bit now .

i LOVE litewraps (can be found on i really can't praise them enough... they are fantastic!

after those I would say motherease, or nappy nation

Another vote for Motherease wraps (popper or velcro) is all that we've used over the last 18months and wouldn't change them.

oh no.. didn't mean nappy nation (although they're ok)... meant nature babies!

but deffo first choice would be the litewrap

Thank you all so far . Not sure on the nippa vs pinning - I used to pin my sister's nappies when I was 7 so presume I could manage to do that - but I quite like the idea of nippas. How do they hold things together though? (suppose I need to see one in the flesh).

I still use plastic pants - very cheap and easy to get - have som e- plain plastic and others that are fabric covered plastic. I also use kushies wraps and nature baby wraps that I had for dd1. As well as some fleece wraps I made for dd2.

nippas are fab - no worries about trying to do pins up with wrigglers - my dd2 is a wriggler - so easy to do the nippa and adjust if necessary. The nippa also helps pull the nappy in to fit closely.

I bought cheap tie ones from Boots. they leak a little (not seriously), but they are very soft on the legs, no red marks.

They have a limited life, but the advantage is that they are cheap!

I fold the terries into a pad (fold terry in quarters, then folded square into half/thirds) and use a Nature Babies popper wrap to hold it all in place. No pins, no nippas, no mess. Never had a leak, though poo does go on the wraps quite often.

Have tried every other combination and fold going, with pins and nippas, and this is definitely the best. Cheap, too.

I only have Bummis PUL Aplix wraps - the ones that go with cotton bottoms. I use them with fitteds prefolds and terries. They are kind of low rise, which means I need to go up a size to cover fitteds (except tots and dizzies) adequately. Over prefolds and terries they are excellent, no leaks at all even at night.
There are some reviews here I find them excellent over terries, although I have to roll back the leg on the terry a bit, as I find they go halfway down ds's thigh - must be the way I'm putting them on.
Anyway, they are very waterproof, bombproof and have cute designs, with lots of room at the back for a big nappy bum.
The sizing is pretty important, we flew through the newborn and small sizes in about 5 months and are now using the mediums, which have a huge weight range 15-30lbs.
What size is your baby?
I will be selling a couple of new wraps cheap soon if you are interested in trying this wrap?
